BACK to ionized water in detail

   Sodium bicarbonate  / alkaline buffer

When we say that we alkalize our body, we don’t necessarily mean increasing our saliva pH or urine pH over the 7.4 required for good body balance; it means increasing the “bicarbonates” in our blood.  The blood pH does not change, but the ability of our blood to neutralize acid in the body increases.  Water, carbon dioxide and sodium chloride produce hydrochloric acid and sodium bicarbonate.

The hydrochloric acid is produced by the body as a result of drinking the high alkaline water, from our “Aging Younger” water ionizer and as it goes into the stomach, sodium bicarbonate is created by that process and the sodium bicarbonate moves into the bloodstream.

Sodium bicarbonate is an alkaline buffer in our blood.  In our blood, there are alkaline buffers and acid buffers, constantly monitoring the blood pH to maintain a constant blood pH of 7.4 in our body. 

When the blood becomes too alkaline, the acid buffers work to bring the pH down; and when the blood becomes too acid, the alkaline buffers work to raise the pH.

In 1996 Dr. Lynda Frassetto at the University of California, San Francisco, discovered that as we age, starting around age 45, we lose the alkaline buffer – bicarbonates - in our blood. 

Insufficient amounts of bicarbonates in our blood reduces our capability to manage, neutralize and dump the acid waste that our body produces.  This is the “cause of aging”.  The age of 45, is the average age when human beings start to show symptoms of diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis and many other adult degenerative diseases. 

Remember the High mountainous range inhabitants of places in the world like the Himalayas, who routinely live to be 100 years old and some to be 120 years old?  The link that was discovered to help them live so long was the water they consumed. It was high alkaline water from the glaciers. These people did not suffer from our diseases like diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis and many other adult degenerative diseases. 

People living and working in all of the lower areas of the world, exist in a polluted environment and have less bicarbonates in their blood than people working and living in a clean environment. So what we do to our environment is a big factor and leads to yet another reason for drinking our ionized water.
